For the past 8 weeks, I have been taking an Improv 101 class. Improv 101 is the beginner level of improv comedy taught through a theatre. Improv comedy is comedy that is made up right on the spot, live, in front of an audience. There are usually 2 or more performers creating scenes that all relate to a suggestion that someone from the audience gave them. It's very fun, but for me, it's also very tricky.
I've done improv before. This is not my first rodeo. But be that as it may, I've always had a love/hate relationship with improv. I love it, but I'm not great at it. Now usually, I'll be the first one to tell you that I'm the best at everything. But with improv, it's like, I've always been consistently mediocre. Now, I don't want no mediocre, I want to be great. That's why I'm taking a class. I want to get better.
Have I gotten better? I guess that's the question. Well, yes, and I really the enjoyed the class. I am excited to see how much better I have gotten. I learned more this time around.
The class show is this Sunday. Wish me luck. I going to try to have fun with it. I think it'll go well. My class gels together in a way that excites me and terrifies me at the same time. Just please, no more suggestions of "the zoo."
